You need to be sure that any agreement is based on full financial disclosure which should have been exchanged as part of the process. Surely any additional income would show in bank statements??

SM can be varied in future by application to the court. The finances for each party will be re examined before changes are made.

It is a good idea to take legal advice before agreeing anything. You can book a fixed price legal financial consultation via this site.

Legals have said best let slide in favour of getting an agreement (and therefore getting out with some remaining sanity) without the vast extra costs of a final hearing. Difficult to know if somebody is being full and frank in their disclosures, particularly when you have see tendencies to omit some information, inflate 'needs', and various other dishonest tactics involving financial values to suit their argument. Not dealing with a rational, honest, individual - and their sharks might be worse but it's difficult to tell whose character is worst at this point.

The question remains of how to know when to do that. It would probably be the same question if somebody suspected multiple employments but only saw one P60 - private investigators seems the only route.
